Apple, Google facing Australian tax crackdown

Global giants including Apple and Google will be forced to reveal how much tax they pay the federal government, under a plan to name and shame firms seen to be dodging their responsibilities by using tax havens.The proposed crackdown, announced on Monday, would also clear the way for the government to publish more detail on how much mining tax resources firms are paying.
